(1984 - 2021)

The Workers Solidarity Movement was founded in Dublin, Ireland in 1984 following discussions by a number of local anarchist groups on the need for a national anarchist organization. At that time with unemployment and inequality on the rise, there seemed every reason to argue for anarchism and for a revolutionary change in Irish society. This has not changed. Like most socialists we share a fundamental belief that capitalism is the problem. We believe that as a system it must be ended, that the wealth of society should be commonly owned and that its resources should be used to serve the needs of humanity as a whole and not those of a small greedy minority. But, just as importantly, we see this struggle against capitalism as also being a struggle for freedom.

WSM has Come to an End — we Look Forward to New Anarchist Beginnings

The Workers Solidarity Movement has taken the decision to disband the organization some 37 years after it formed. While we recognize the WSM’s many achievements over the years and while we are each committed to continuing the cause of anarchism in some capacity, we have collectively agreed that the WSM is no longer the best vehicle to achieve that aim.

We intend to maintain existing WSM material on and offline as an archive. We also intend to develop discussions around what the legacy of the organization is, its achievements and lessons to be drawn for the future.

Each of us expects to remain active in anarchist politics and indeed to often find ourselves working together, including potentially as members of future organizations. We recognize that old habits are hard to overcome and that younger generations of anarchists are better placed to come up with the structures and organizing practices most suited to the current moment.

As anarchists, we still carry a new world in our hearts. We know that the way you fight back and struggle will shape the victory. The WSM has come to an end. We hope this decision will open a space for new revolutionary anarchist ideas, energies, and new beginnings.
